PRIME school

Southwark's Free Primary School has links to the meadows and woodland of Pickhurst’s Forest School and lots more new facilities on site too

with six new classrooms, new facilities including a multi-use games area, an all weather soft play and a new Year 3, Southwark Primary Free School has extra capacity this September to welcome even more local children into a secure, happy and stimulating environment.

A not-for-profit organisation, the Southwark Free Schools Trust has been set up to run an outstanding new primary school in the borough and the Southwark Primary Free School, a mixed state primary open to all pupils aged 4 to 11, is the result placed right at the heart of the community.

Vicki Buckland, Head of the School, is in charge of the day to day running of the school and has depth of experience at schools and academies in nearby Peckham. Strategic support is provided by Matt Rampton (a National Leader in Education) as Executive Principal who is also Executive Principal at Pickhurst Infant and Junior Academies. These links and access to the resources of other schools make Southwark Primary Free School small enough to deliver quality teaching to its 53 pupils and yet able to cherry pick the benefits available in the wider community too.
